About this item

Q&A Is Alzheimer's disease hereditary? Are there memory exercises I should be doing now? Is all dementia Alzheimer's, or are there other forms? How do I make time for both my parent with Alzheimer's and my children? How long can someone live with this disease?

All caregivers and families touched by Alzheimer's and dementia face a seemingly overwhelming number of emotional decisions. The Alzheimer's Answer Book serves as a much-needed resource for you in this difficult time and is full of the sound advice and immediate guidance you need.

Written by an experienced doctor who began his career as a geriatric psychiatrist, The Alzheimer's Answer Book covers such topics as:

  • What are the causes of Alzheimer's and dementia
  • What preparations do I need to make immediately after diagnosis?
  • Are there medications available that help slow the progress of the disease?
  • How can I tell if my parent is in pain?
  • How can I avoid "caregiver burnout" when I'm constantly caring for a parent?
  • Where can I find resources and support in my community?
  • What are the differences between Medicare and Medicaid, and how do I know what insurance will and will not cover?

Written in an easy-to-read Q&A format, The Alzheimer's Answer Book explains confusing medical lingo and provides straightforward answers to all of your most pressing questions.
